Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterMany fans have likely noticed that WWE's Intercontinental championship has been put on the back-burner and really isn't used for major angles as of late. An example of this was Kofi Kingston's match against Alberto Del Rio at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. WWE went with a non-title match and the commentators basically ignored it and joked around. We noted prior to the PPV that there was talk of putting the IC title on the line and then doing a 'champion vs. champion' match at WrestleMania between Edge and Del Rio but that obviously didn't happen.
Jim Ross tweeted the following on Sin 'Mistico' Cara: "Mistico is signed, sealed & delivered w/ WWE. Now known as Sin Cara. Helluva young hand. A new star looms on the horizon. Congrats Sin Cara. Every major media outlet in Mexico City present 4 Sin Cara media announcement. He's doing 1 on 1's now w/ them including espn deportes. It was great 2 rep WWE in Mexico City 4 Sin Cara signing anouncement. Appreciate the opportunity to step back on the field, so 2 speak. WWE has high hopes for Sin Cara. He has many new masks. Major TV 'rollout,' He's 27 & has (opportunity to be) main eventer. A flyer, offensive innovator." This is obviously WWE's plan for the next Rey Mysterio.
As noted last week here on the website, RAW producer Kevin Dunn is not a big fan of Sheamus despite Triple H being on good terms with him. So far this year, Sheamus has a 1-8 record on WWE TV and pay-per-view events. Ouch.
